Movie beauty Penelope Cruz hopes to have children with boyfriend MATTHEW McCONAUGHEY, but only if they can conquer their fear of settling down in one place together.

The jetsetting Hollywood couple both love travelling the world and have discussed the effect a baby would have on their freewheeling lifestyle.

But Spanish Cruz still plans to make her relationship with McConaughey work - if they can first survive a few months apart while she works in Europe.

She says, "It would be hard keeping up our nomad life with a baby, we don't like staying in one place for too long. But it might work out.

"Me and Matthew will be apart for four months while I go to Europe.

"But when I'm back it would be really nice if we could be together forever."
